Zone 6
Pretty plant I keep in a large pot with sevral others on my poorch. I like how it trails over the side of the planter. Would be intresting in a hanging planter at eye level.

Tag says it will bloom until frost. Hardy in zones 9-11, annual elsewhere. Easy to care for, which I find to be true.
